We had the pleasure of having the Hon. Mike Baird MP along to our newly constructed community garden at Baranbali Ave Seaforth on Thursday morning. We received a grant via the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership program in early 2012 to construct the garden and Mike has been a strong supporter from the beginning. The much-needed rain he brought with him (hail even!) was also very welcome.
We were really pleased that he liked the garden and endorsed it as a project well worth supporting, as community gardening is a valuable recreational activity that contributes to the health and well-being of the wider community by providing a wide range of environmental, social and educational benefits.
